Indeed. It turns out you'll need 0.8 to get hold of the planet code on
windows, its still suffering from arch filename wierdness; but the
good folks on the bzr lists explained the solution. For those playing
at home, the magic to get the branch under cygwin with 0.8 is:
$ bzr init --format knit planet
$ cd planet
$ bzr pull

This creates a knit-format branch instead of weave-format; knit is
bleeding edge and not the default yet, so only the adventurous or the
unlucky-enough-to-be-on-windows should try it.
NB those instructions don't work with the 0.8 rc available for
download today, you'll hit an assertion error. You need the
development branch, or wait a day or two for the fixes to appear.
